Founded at Southwestern College in 3 924, Beta Chapter was organized on the George Washington campus in 1930, The particular purpose of the society is to send out from colleges and universities young men and women imbued with social idealism, trained in scientific thought, and encouraged to help others to be scientific in their thinking on social questions. 72 re hmen 1 1 r ii iiuiii 1 1 m Secretary Treasurer OFFICERS MARY ALfCE NOVINGER President LOUISE WILLIAMS SHIRLEY ANN BLAIR Vice-President DOROTHY JEAN EGGEUNG FLORENCE MARIE MEARS Faculty Adviser Highest scholastic honor which Freshman university women can attain is membership in Alpha Lambda Delta. Student members must have completed at least fifteen semester hours with an average of 3.5 or higher. In September chapter members gathered on Strong Hall roof and served a buffet supper to scholarship winners from city high schools. Miss Kirkbride and Dean Koenig were guests. Later in the evening ' " oldiimers " started group singing and taught the " Alma Mater " to the new freshmen. This year Phyllis Abrams won the book presented annually to the senior woman with the highest scholastic average. New members. Initiated twice a year, are representative of the sorority ' s aims — to promote intelligent living and a higher standard of learning and to encourage superior scholastic attainment among the freshmen women. HONORARY MEMBERS President Marvin Dean Johnstone Dean Doyle Professor Roberts In order to encourage and reward high scholarship, Phi Eta Sigma, honorary fraternity for freshmen men, was founded at the University of Illinois in 1923, The George Washington University Chapter was established in 1929, Freshman men who attain a scholastic average of at least 3,5 are admitted to membership.

Mortar Board meetings — when all nine busy members could get together at the same time- — were hilarious: Dot and her practice teaching, Jane always late. Elaine at the KayhoeY, Anne helping Harry register. Felicia and her pessimism, Janet leaving work at odd hours, Liz and her posters,, Aggie want- ing to sleep mornings and Margaret trying in vain to get a semblance of order out of the meetings. Mortar Board is composed of senior women who are elected to membership at the end of their junior year on the basis of outstanding service to the University, scholarship, and leadership. Registration found them behind an information booth in Govern- ment, where they answered questions from ’ Where do I go now? " to " Could you outline a program for an engineering major? " At the first All-U -Assembly, the original six members of Mortar Board augmented their ranks with the tapping of Agnes Smith, Janet Evans and Elaine Smith. During the traditional University tours Mortar Board introduced the new freshmen to the nooks and crannies of the G, W. campus. Noticing that Columbian House was a little down at the heel, the group initiated a project to collect funds for Its redecoration. Several Silver Studies were also held throughout the year. Outstanding service of the year, however, was the Career Conference for all University women held early in March. Leading authorities, representing many professional fields, spoke on the various vocational opportunities for women. Social events included a waffle party with American U‘s Cap and Gown Society, a breakfast at the Roger Smith, a luncheon in honor of new members, a party with the Maryland Mortar Boards, a Founder ' s Day Breakfast in February, and the Fall Alumnae As- sociation meeting at the British Embassy with Lord and Lady Halifax as hosts.

MikEofsfcy, II LEE HI If you ve ever wondered how the Glee Club ' s genial, dynamic Doc Harmon acquired his medical epithet, be ye hereby informed- — he is a bona fide, sure nuff M. D. Doc may be called out at any time, rehearsals not excepted, to usher some prospective Glee Clubber info the world. Perhaps no other group on campus works harder or gets so much fun out of it as the G. W. songsters. During the traditional Easter and May concerts, mem- bers thoroughly enjoy themselves and many alumnae of the club return each year to sing ' Kamenoi Ostrow, " final number of the Spring Concert. Afterward, the Glee Clubbers leave the platform for fhe dance floor, and let the orchestra carry on. Betty Lou Trowbridge, one of the star sopranos, originally had to forego membership because her cheer- leading activities took so much of her time. This year Betty Lou was so wrapped up in singing she couldn ' t find time for cheers. Just to prove there ' s romance in a song, Pauline Gish, Second Soprano, met and married Dale Davis, Second Bass, Though both are grads, they still faithfully attend rehearsals. John Mitchell and Chuck Dougherty hold the distinc- tion of being the two oldest members- — in point of ser- vice at least. Doc himself came in as a Second Bass in 1921 and was elected director in 1924, For the past few years after the final appearance of the season, Glee Club golden throats stopped pouring forth long enough to pour in a liberal assortment ot good things to eat at Chuck Dougherty ' s. The silence doesn ' t last long though — you just can ' t keep them from singing. One of the most distracting but fascinating things that can happen to a waiter at Child ' s is to be on duty the night of a Glee Club concert. After the singing is over, the Club en masse makes for pan- cakes and coffee on 14th Street. Though singing makes big appetites, Doc foots the bill. Before a concert Doc always advises the girls to " Be as glamorous as possible — it pays. " Judy Conklin ' s wonderful voice isn’t her only talent. When Mrs. Harmon, accompanist, advisor and general morale builder isn ' t around, Judy takes over at the piano as the first student accompanist. Ready to sing at the slightest Indication, Doc and his gang prove that life Without a Song just isn ' t worth living.

CHARLOTTE MELLUM CAY KNOCKEY Artist ' s Bureau 94 It was on those memorable evenings of October 9th and I Oth that Cue and Curtain opened its 1945-46 season. After much feverish preparation and hard work on the parts of all concerned, our first effort of the year was presented to the world. The curtain raiser for the season was Karol Capek s fantasy of the future, R.U.R, (Rossum ' s Universal Robots, to you). Although the worst of the manpower shortage, so they tell us, was over, every man in sight was drafted to fill the ranks in our regiment of robots, (The word " robot, " according to our director, " Sparkle, " who is the only man alive who knows how to pronounce it, is pronounced " rubbit M — so let ' s not hear any more of the " rowboat " stuff). The entire production was enlivened by original dances done by the dance groups under the direction of Miss Burtner. Incidentally, the blue dungarees that all stagehands — and who in Cue and Curtain doesn t double as stagehand now and then — are sporting are leftover robot costumes. John McClure who played Domin, the manager of the robot factory, was ably supported by Bert Await, Nelson Werz, Bill McClellan, and Tom Lodge, Jane Drew, as the leading lady did an excel- lent job in spite of her double capacity as prop manager and the mad dashing about that the latter position necessitated. The final curtain had scarcely fallen on R.U.R. before work on the next show, Sidney Howard ' s story of vicious mother love, " The Silver Cord, " was started. Who can forget Cay Knockey as the demoniaclal, scheming mother? This was the same Cay Knockey who had run lights so well on R.U.R, undaunted by Herb Halberstadt, electrician and handy man at large, having fits at her elbow every five minutes, John McClure and Dick Lathrop assumed the roles of Mrs. Phelp ' s two mother-ridden sons. Mlmi Branson was beautifully hysterical as the jilted fiancee of Robert, the younger son, while Margaret Fry [Lt. (j.g.) Fry, U.S.N.R, during the day) was convincingly defiant as David’s wife. The sets for both shows were designed and executed by Ray Tollman, not without much labor from all the members. Anyone wandering into the auditorium while work was in progress on the sets would, more often than not, find himself in a pair of paint-covered overalls wielding a hammer or paint brush with the gusto of a professional. The amount of coffee consumed by Cue and Curtain members during a production is absolutely phenomenal, " Sparkle " at present holding all local records in the consumption of black coffee. The number of sand- wiches put away by the stage crew alone would keep a family of six in food for a year. The last two shows of the year, the annual musical and the classical drama have not yet been produced as the CHERRY TREE goes to press. The musical Kaufman and Hart s Pulitzer Prize winner, Of Thee I Sing " will be presented in March. With the precedent set by the first two shows of the season, G. W. audiences should be in for some first- rate entertainment. 95 OFFICERS 1 J 1 5 IRENE MARTIN Business Manager CLARA O ' NEIL First Assistant Business Manager VIRGINIA O ' NEIL Second Assistant Business Manager ELEANOR ERICKSON Publicity Manager ELIZABETH BALDRIDGE Talent Scout MARION WARFIELD .

Original robot dances, per- formed behind a transparent screen, echoed the fantastic elements of the play. Repeating last year ' s innovation, Orchesis and Cue and Curtain again got together on the latter ' s spring musical. Three different skill levels are recognized by a tri-group division. Orchesis I members have mastered the fundamentals of movement and the mechanics of dance. Many former members such as Jerry Ross who played the lead in " Sing Out Sweet Land " and " Dream With Music have become outstanding professionals. Bar- bara Lyddane, Business Manager for three years, is another Orchesis member enjoying a career in dance. Lucy Pefta has been active in the Dance Playhouse Concert Group. Orchesis I is a closed group and its members are chosen from Orchesis 11 or are recommended for membership by Miss Burtner. The second group is also closed except for recommendations by the instructor. Members of Junior dance who show exceptional ability may graduate into Orchesis IL Junior Dance is open to all who are interested. Many students in the departmental classes take advantage of this opportunity to supplement their work in dance. All groups meet weekly in the new dance studio in Building J. Most of the music accompanying the original compositions is especially arranged for Orchesis. Each spring Orchesis presents its outstanding compositions in a recital sponsored by the University Alumni Association. 97 MM MARCIA BARTLETT Director DOROTHY EGGELING Assistant Director Campus Organization for General Service is an organization of which George Washington may well be proud. It is the center around which all social service work is organized, and «ts members serve as nurses ' aides, prepare Christmas boxes, train for Girl Scout work, and serve at the Episcopal Home for Children. COGS was organized on campus in 1944 and member- ship is based on activity points.

Members include foreign students, those whose parents were bom abroad, and American students who are inter- ested 3n the purpose of the society. Activities for the year included the famous teas of Professor Deibert, a Hallowe ' en party, and a Taffy Pull. At the Christmas party, members told about the many interesting Christmas customs all over the world. During the March Evening of Music, each member played his favorite records and everything from South American rhythms to Russian folk songs resulted. The Society brought the year to a successful close with a picnic which featured election of officers. Biggest event of the year was the spring dance which former members and interested University students attended. First Row; K. Kalter, |_ CoN -Pardo, L Zeno. Second Row: E. Banigan, E. Llska, I.

Gastronomical gratification (the joy of eating to you] had some stiff competition from the Strong Hall Circus — local talent proved good enough to keep the girls choking with laughter. Since many Big and Little Sister teams were affected by Panhel ' s four-week silence period, a get-acquainted tea was given after rushing. At the Mothers ' Tea, guest speaker Dean Kayser was his usual fascinating self. Just before January finals, Dean Adams gave some eleventh-hour words of wisdom on " How to Study. " During the second semester the Big Sisters finished their con- stitution and elected new officers. A spring style show and a May picnic completed the group ' s most successful year.

Here the new student meets his instructors and fellow students, and many old acquaintances are renewed. To insure continued understanding between the engineers and other university students a weekly column " Slide Rule Slants " is wnten for THE HATCHET, Each member of the Council takes a turn at writing this column, and a representative cross section of the attitudes of the engineering students and of their activities 5s presented. With the winter months comes the Engineers ' Bail, which Is held at one of Washington ' s most celebrated hotels. This is a gala affair with dancing and fun for everyone. The Engineers ' Banquet Is an event to which each student looks forward. The guest speakers are outstanding engineer mostly alumni, from industry. Honorary scholastic awards are made, and recognition is given to all those who have been active in the Engineering School during the year.

Representative to Engineer ' s Council The Student Branch of A.I.E.E. at George Washington University was reorganized for the primary purpose of advancing the knowl- edge and theory of Electrical Engineering, and for the secondary purpose of establishing acquaintances among engineering students. To carry forth these aims, every activity for the year was carefully chosen: undergraduate and graduate students were selected to give the principal talks at the monthly meetings; members were urged to write papers on any current electrical subject to be given orally to the student engineer body and then in written form to the National organization in competition with students from other universities. The Honorary Fraternity of Sigma Tau made tutoring available to students who desired help in engineering subjects. In November, Professor Milton K. Aker gave a party at his home for the Society. The Electrical Engineers joined the other engineering organizations in holding the Annual Dance, and, later in the spring, the Annual Banquet.

To promote interest in religious activities and to stimulate coordination among the various groups, the Council sponsors Fall and Spring fellowships. The Reverend Oscar Bfackwelder, pastor of the Lutheran Church of the Reformation, spoke at the Fall Fellowship, A mixer during October Freshman Week served both to acquaint students of different denomina- tions with each other and to help each organization to meet new members. Dr, Burnice H. Jarman, Director of Religious Activi- ties for the University, serves as adviser to the Council, The Chapel Committe plans programs and secures speakers for the weekly services of the university chapel. President Marvin opened the first service and ministers from nearby churches were guest speakers during the year. Students conduct chapel as a non-sectarian ex- pression of their faith in the contribution of religion to education. The simple dignity of the twenty-minute chapels in Columbian House are inspiring and helpful to weary students who often find solutions for their problems in these straightforward and practical talks.

Summer meetings in Mr. Pike ' s Massachusetts Avenue apartment, featuring outstanding speakers, such as Coleman Jennings, were followed by discussion and refreshments end ended with evening prayer and hymn singing. By fall, the organization had outgrown Mr, Pike ' s apartment, so they moved over to St, John ' s Parish House, giving up their organ, but acquiring a fireplace. Mr. Pike and ‘ ' Smutty " from Westminster Foundation sponsored a series of lectures by prom- inent Washington church leaders and held joint meetings of the two clubs. The fall program ended with a bang-up Christmas party, games and mulled cider around a blazing fir©. During exams, the meetings were moved to Sunday evening with light supper. Open House and " bull sessions " in the Parish House. The lecture series, started in the fall, was climaxed during the Lenten season by the Wednesday evening lectures of one of the country ' s leading theologians, Professor Andrew T. Molfegen of the Virginia Theological Seminary, Some of the members visited St. John ' s Orphanage one day and liked it so much that they kept going back to entertain the children, tutor them and take them on trips around the city. Warm Sunday afternoons found the Canterbury Pied Pipers any- where from the Smithsonian to the Zoo.

The club has a strong influence on school policy, especially in regard to veteran affairs. It has been extremely useful in helping the newly returned veterans to register and become acquainted with the University and its activities. The dub also has been instrumental in securing living quarters for the men and providing for part-time employment and mutual study programs. The club found time to promote and enjoy various social activities. The Vet ' s football team carried off top honors on campus and won the Intramural Champ- ionship. A party at the Sigma Chi house, the " Girl the Soys Come Home To " dance, and other social functions completed the season. ★ To love the game beyond the prize . . . Henry Newbolf ZJll P II II 1 s The year 1945-1946 will long be remembered in the sports annals of the University. This year marked the return of George Washington to the intercollegiate sports world after an absence of three years. Basket- ball was resumed, and the addition of other major and minor sports was scheduled for the next year. This year ' s cage edition did not live up to the high standards set by previous teams but it was nonetheless a credit to the University. The team got a good start by defeating a strong Fort Meade quintet, but soon bowed to the Southern Conference teams. With the return of many veteran lettermen the Spring season promised to bring an increasing number of victories and lay the groundwork for a strong Colonial team next year. 122 Presenting our first varsity basketball squad in three years: LADDIE REICHW1IN: Captain of the squad, lanky Laddie has earned his second letter as a Colonial. His height was a definite asset to the team in taking the ball of the backboard and also in ringing up baskets. TOM ROBERTSON: Tom played his first year as a Colonial, turning in many stellar performances as guard. One of the leading scorers, Robertson obtained most of his points on lay up shots. BILL RICKMAN: Richman concluded his first year as a Colonial by turning in consistent performances as guard. Always playing a steady game, he was a valuable aid to the team. BILL TINKLEBERG: This was Bill ' s first year as a Colonial and he capably filled a forward position. One of the cleverest ball handlers, he was outstanding for his own team play. RALPH O ' BRIEN: O ' Brien, a newcomer to the Colonials, earned his letter as a guard. A sharp-shooter! he scores from the floor with set and hook shots. Opposing teams found him one of the hardest Colonials to guard. Intramural and interfraternity sports gained promi- nence this year. After a grueling season Theta Delta Chi came through to take the intramural football championship from the Bohemian Club. The Theta Delt ' s, however, were nosed out by a determined Sigma Chi e leven in the interfraternity competition. This marked the third straight year that the Sigs have won this championship. 123 ■ The intramural basketball league championship went to the Medical Sophs after much debate. Sigma Alpha Epsilon won the interfraternlty title. In the 1946 season participation jumped to ten teams and promised to be one of the most hotly contested races in the school ' s history. With the new rules in effect a play-off among the top four teams will decide the champion. Probably the most exciting of the sports events of the 1945 year was the spring boxing tourney before an enthusiastic crowd. Outstanding pugilists included Ray Coultrip, Ira Cohn, and Jack Besoner. This spring prom- ised even greater enthusiasm with many veterans enter- ing the ring, Interfraternlty bowling championship was won by S.A,E. The Vets held the 1945 Intramural baseball championship, while Sigma Chi copped the Interfra- ternlty trophy. With varsity basketball back and football on the way, G.

Outstanding players who made the Honorary Varsity were Barbara Nesbit; Jean Read, Anna Plepis, Kitty Killeen, Anne Hirst, Barbara Melnicove, Sue Berger, Leuvenia Peel, Ada Biskar, Isabelle Knowles, and Shirley Smith. The upper class soccer team had a successful season, winning all its games at G. W., but losing and tying in two games with Hood. The riding classes climaxed their season with a riding show at the Pegasus stables. In the Advanced Class, Diana Roosevelt took top honors with Onie Masterson a close second. Mary Cowgfll was Elementary Class Champion, followed by Rose- mary Sexton. The singles tennis tournament, with a large turnout, resulted in victory for Anne Gray, who is Woman s Champion for the District of Columbia. Anne Hirst was runner-up. In December the classes moved indoors with basketball, badminton and swimming. The sophomore basketball team took top honors in the interclass competition with Anne Hirst, Lynn Harpster, Sue Berger, Dot Baines, Barbara Bacon, Janet Dofdge, Janice Martin and Kitty Killeen their outstanding players.

Winter sports had their grand finale on March second and sixteenth with Goucher and Hood coming to G. W. for sports days. The Rifle Club was active throughout the year, holding tournaments with Drexel, Beaver and Maryland Universities. The Physical Education Department began a new system of Recreational Activities Clubs, designed to give freshmen the opportunity to enjoy a variety of recreational activities. These clubs were started on February 6, each electing a chairman, secretary-treasurer and member-at-large. The chairmen of all the clubs formed a central committee to plan special events and programs. Each freshman joined one of these clubs, choosing between badminton, bowling, ice-skating, modern dance, rifle, roller skating, social dance and volleyball. The clubs met on Wednesday afternoons, taking the place of the hygiene classes formerly given. The recreational clubs, providing both elementary and ad- vanced instruction, received enthusiastic responses from the students. 128 Fraternity is democracy in action, men learning to live together in peace and sharing the obli- gations and privileges that go with membership.

With many veteran Sigs returning to school, they were glad to move out of their cramped war " quarters. Right in step with this pre-war atmosphere was the increase of social events. This year they started a new tradition— a pledge-active basketball game followed by a big party with the pledges as hosts. Every Saturday night found the Sigs entertaining somewhere — from get- togethers at the house to an oyster roast with their alumni club. However the Sweetheart Dance at the Washington Aviation Club stole the social spotlight with the crowning of Kappa beauty Joan Rowcliffe as the season ' s Sweetheart of Sigma Chi. It seems that the words ' sports ' ' and " Sigs " have become practically synonomous. The inter-fraternity football championship went to the undefeated Sigma Chi team for the third straight year, and they also came out on top in the inter-frat baseball clash. The return of varsity basketball found Chet McCall and Jud Hulsey on the squad, while three out of the four Sigs who entered the boxing tournament emerged victorious. The Sigma Chi’s were well-known individually, too.

In the tall semester, besides a large pledge class, the Phi Sigs made full use of those members returning from war, electing Lee Moran president during the fall and John Hewgill president in the spring. A review of the year reveals several moonlight cruises ed by Buddy Belote, Chuck Daugherty ' s miniature golf parties, a hard times party at Potomac Boat Club, a weiner roast at Sligo Cabin, the fall formal held October 13 at the house and on the last day of fall rushing, a southern-fried chicken dinner. Sunday afternoon tea dances started on November I I with each of the sorori- ties being invited on successive Sundays. At the annual Farmers ' Day Bail on Nov. 17, Elaine Clark of Kappa Delta Sorority was chosen the Phi Sig Farmer ' s Daughter. The pledge class held a Christmas formal in honor of the actives. The house was gaily decorated with Christ- mas colors. After the orchestra left, Christmas carols were sung around the nine-foot Christmas tree. After an all-night New Year’s Eve party, John Gray, social chairman, led a large group out for breakfast at 8:00 A. M. The Tobacco Road Ball, highlighting February ' s social events was held with appropriate costumes and sellings. Phi Sigs celebrated the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the fraternity with formal Founder ' s Day Ball, while the annual Carnation Ball was held In May. Phi Sigs were very much in evidence in school activities.

In addition there is the annual Spring Dinner Dance held at one of the hotels around town. Add to these at least four exchange dances with sororities each semester and numerous unscheduled Informal parties. The Bal Boheme this year was held, as it has been for the last three years, at the Potomac Boat House. This year ' s Bal broke the record for attendance and revelry The Brothers from SAE ' s Maryland chapter, University of Virginia, and University of Richmond chap- ters were in attendance together with guests from other fraternities. The most appropriate remark on the party at its height was made by a veteran who said, " This Is worse than combat, " New Years Eve witnessed another record turnout, and was in most ways a repeat performance of the Bal Boheme, this time In formal attire. The chapter in 1945 won the Interfraternity Basketball and Bowling Championships and has a fine team under way for 1946 in basketball. Our chapter adviser, Lt, Frank Bastable, USNR, Is back with the chapter after an absence of two years. Brothers Bob Wright, Hugh Logsdon, Ed Bauman were discharged and returned to the chapter in February. Brother Jack Waddell transferred to the University of Miami, In Miami, Florida, this fall and was instrumental in bringing a chapter of the fraternity to that campus Bob Peterson won the award for being best pledge of the 1944-1945 pledge classes. Bill Flack lent his voice freely in leading chapter sing- ing and acted as M.C. at one of the chapter ' s most successful parties, " Flack ' s Flop House and Bar, ' " held for the second time this last rush season.

Treasurer Pi Phi is one of those sororities where you find every- thing from the quiet to the energetic, always-on-fhe-go type but never the slow type. And no matter whether they ' re out winning honors in scholarship, giving extra-curricular activities a boost, or shining at G.W.U. or fraternity hops they re tops. Just for example, fake Jane Lingo, who, when she isn t studying quietly in some remote nook is running around madly straightening out her social life with a pencil, 3x5 cards and a notebook; and Student Council Publicity Director, also chapter fund collector, Wells along with Elinor Kilgore, Doris Court, Jean Holloway and Gloria Chavez (who have already plunged into matrimonial bliss] will soon be hearing wedding bells. Because of their talents, abilities and wonderful diver- sities, Liz and Jane were elected to Mortar Board and Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities, To keep us amused we have the Harriets, Suzies, Rounds and Mary Ogs and Bart who also spends her time directing COGS. Lovely Mera Riddell and Bobby Grigsby who was elected CHERRY TREE Beauty Candidate make beauty their duty. And Maxwell, Sally, Jackie and Bobby have taken the CHERRY TREE up as a hobby. Last summer we all set out on a houseparty to get a bit of relaxation and recreation. And even though it rained practically the whole time, it didn ' t dampen our fun, for we made light of it In spite of it Our Christmas party was even more wonderful than usual because Marcia Bartlett got dressed up in a red suit and played Santa Claus, and the Pledge Formal held on Christmas Day at the 2400 Hotel was swell.

Fall rush ended with a record breaking pledge class, followed by a dance at the Wardman Park, weekly exchange dances and the annual pledge-active picnic highlighted fall events. Christmas vacation found the gals packing baskets for needy families and staging a big celebration at the 400 ' Club. Spring found the pledge chefs fixing delicious dinners in the diner before meetings while actives spent their spare time consuming five-pound boxes of candy and admiring each other ' s sparklers. Since the pledges found that there wasn ' t room for them in the actives coach, they hitched on their own car, the " D. T. Special " that carried them to a first- place victory in the Panhel Goat Show, This talented crowd distinguished itself individually too — with Keppie Kephart and Norma Foust each holding a freshman class office; Lynn Harpster added her name to the long list of sportsminded Chi O ' s who won the varsity Volley Ball and Bowling Championships. Activity enthusiasts were led by Conductor Anne Peterson (Annie P.) who presided over Student Council affairs and was elected into Who s Who, before she left to join Marianne Atherholt in the parade of winter brides.

Anyone on campus can tell you that SK also stands for " swell kids 1 Initiating a wonderful summer was the week at Sher- wood Forest when Dot Baines saved the day (and the Sigma Kappa ' s from starvation) by her four-mile hike for food. All night bridge games highlighted the sum- mer evenings in the big rustic cabin. Grand times continued in the Fall with the presenta- tion of the twenty-five new pledges at Open House, Founder ' s Day Banquet at the Washington Club, dance with the Phi Sags. Always to be remembered was the rollicking weekend at Sherwood Forest with Lois Smith, star kicker of the football game, and Clara Widmayer s gravy, Ma rking the holidays they had a gay Christmas party in the rooms when pledges got back at their ' mothers ' ' with clever rhymed take-offs, while the Willard Hotel was the scene of one of our loveliest pledge formals. Although always having fun, winter and summer, on the dance floor or camping out, Sigma Kappa ' s are also active on campus. Keeping them in the limelight this year are Margaret Lynn, Who ' s Who, president of Mortar Board, Pi Epsilon Delta, Alpha Lambda Delta, and the Student Council — Juanita Hall, the girl who keeps the Student Council minutes, holds a full-time job and wears a Who ' s Who key — Mary VI ret, capable president of Alpha Pi Epsilon— and their three Phi Betas, Martha Seabrook, Lois Smith and Margaret Lynn.

Getting off to a good start with a late summer house- party at Herald Harbor, they returned to school full of plans and expectations. First on the list came redeco- rating — busy with paint and tailor ' s tacks, they had the rooms rejuvenated and ready for rushing — and they are still getting compliments on the results! November rolled around, finding the Phi Mu’s worn out, but thrilled with their grand pledge class. The neo- phytes were immediately taken into the whirl of events — beginning with the annual Founder ' s Day banquet and ending with a festive Rose and White pledge dance. Highlight of the Christmas holidays was the get- together with the Phi Mu s from American University— the crowd piled into the rooms and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of the G. W, hosts. As a climax to the years social activities — -four lovely Phi Mu s acquired new last names. The clan was kept busy going around to the weddings of Helen Johnston, " Bitsey " Respess, Robin Metz, and Helen Lukens. With all their socializing, there were activities and honors also. The scholarship bug must have bitten Janet Abbe hard, for she carried off fop honors — making Alpha Lambda Delta and winning the annual alumnae scholarship cup. Bettynan Dean was Phi Mu ' s entry in the Ideal Coed Contest, while stunning Gloria Baker was their CHERRY TREE Beauty Queen candidate. Despite their hard work on campus, they still found time to carry out Phi Mu activities sponsored by the national organization — they contributed to social service and scholarship projects.

Treasurer Recording Secretary MARY ALICE NOVINGER Historian- Editor The D 2 army breezed through the campus campaign this year and emerged with many ribbons to show off their victories. Social skirmishes began in June with a bang-up break- fast given in honor of the discharged senior and con- tinued through the summer with weekends at the beach and a watermelon feast, to escape bombardments of hot weather. Battling with classes in the fall didn’t stop the D Z ' s— they counter-attacked with their tradi- tional Harvest Ball, a gala evening of songs and toasted marshmallows around the fireplace at Joan Beattie s log cabin, and a festive Christmas dance. In January they celebrated the brief armistice after exams with a Flunk and-Forget party. Many campaign ribbons were won this year — General Rhea Blake, Betty Trade, Felicia Miller, Shirley Mason and Jane Clark won Phi Beta Kappa keys — while Mary Alice Novinger and Dotty Jean Eggelfng were officers of Alpha Lambda Delta. Honored for their service in the field of activities were Who ' s Who members Felicia Miller, Vice-President of the Student Council, Secretary of Mortar Board and CHERRY TREE Editor, and AssocL ate Editor Lois Lord. The new recruits, not content with merely putting an extra shine on the sorority trophies, stopped their K. P. duties long enough to produce a mystery skit — -The Legend of Foggy Bottom, ' which won them second place in the Annual Goat Show — and provided G. W. with a ghost. The D Z ' s supply of rice and old shoes became dangerously low to meet the demands of all the mar- riages, but they turned out full force nevertheless for the weddings of Betty Walden and Peggy James in the summer, Dedi Black and Jane Elliott in mid-winter, and Rhea Blake and Louise Bender in late spring. After such victories and achievement, the D Z ' s can now throw aside their campaign equipment and look forward to a summer furlough. 154 First Row: Charlotte Beall, Mary Beck, Louise Bender, Dorothy Black.

Under the direction of Producer Dolores Lancaster, the cast worked well, leaving her time to carry out her duties as President of the Inter-Sorority Athletic Board, and Seniors Editor of the CHERRY TREE. The first scene opened with KD summer activities — the gay houseparty at Marianne Edge ' s Maryland cot- tage, festive rush parties at members homes — and ended with a pledge dance at the Roger Smith Hotel to Introduce their lovely new performers. The second act found the KD s busy with activities — assistant director Elaine Clark was cast as Farmer ' s Daughter at the Phi Slg ' s Farmer s Day Ball. Also starring were Kitty Bauer as President of the Newman Club, and Ellen Li ska who wrote the minutes for the Pan-Hellenic Council and directed the activities of the International Students Society. All the KD s were top-rate performers at the Christmas party they gave for underprivileged children. The end of the act found the spotlight shining on five beautiful KD brides— Pauline Gish, Glnny Allen, Shirley Cranford, Betty Graham and Mary Jane Whittlesey, The curtain fell pn the dramatic Black and White Ball, and the farewell parties given for the veteran actors who were graduating. There were many press dippings to treasure— the dinner dance that highlighted the Christmas holidays with Province President, Mrs. John Ross, as guest star . . , the " sleepless " slumber parties at Dolores Lancaster ' s and Mary Jane Whittlesey ' s , . . the numerous exchange dances with fraternities — wherever the KD s performed they met with success. The footlights have shone on Sigma Mu Chapter for another year — look to Kappa Delta for a repeat per- formance. 153 First Row: Kitty Sauer, Beverly Bum- gamer, Elaine Clerk, Marianne Edge.

Historian Things started buzzing with the Zefas last summer when they were hosts to their Alpha Province Conven- tion and they ' ve hardly had a spare moment since. . . Their social schedule was especially full with something going on all the time. . . The Founder s Day Banquet started the fall term, followed by rushing and a dance at the Wardman Park to introduce their lovely new crop of pledges. They gave a Christmas Party for the D. C, alums and enjoyed numerous bowling parties. The end of finals found the whole crowd sight-seeing in New York. When Spring fever caught up with the Zetas, many a warm weekend found them dropping their books and heading for West Point, Princeton and An- napolis. They highlighted the spring semester with another formal dance — and plans for a lively Zeta house party to close a busy year. The Zetas seem to have been just as active individually as they were as a group. Phi Beta Kappa, Glnny Jones, their " Ideal Coed " candidate, added both brains and beauty. Vivacious " Chris-tine " Hudson ' s southern drawl livened up Alpha Pi Epsilon, Canterbury Club and Re- ligious Council meetings. Phi Pi Epsilon pledged Betty Mayfield and Dorothea Baker. Cathie Barry served as Publicity Chairman of Big Sis, and reported for the Hatchet, while many members went " all out " for the Glee Club, and added their talents to Cue ' n ' Curtain. Pretty Charteen Holly transferred from Alabama and immediately swung Into activities — she was Zeta ' s CHERRY TREE " Beauty Queen " contestant.

JEAN STAIGER Vice-President RUTH JEANNE LUDOLPH . . ELIZABETH LEWIS Treasurer Recording Secretary Corresponding Secretary Delta Gamma weighed anchor and set sail at The George Washington University with the founding of Beta Rho chapter on October 6, 3 945. Sails were unfurled by the five National Officers with formal Initiation ceremonies at Maryland University, The launching was completed by a reception at the home of President and Mrs. Cloyd Heck Marvin. Two weeks later the general rush season mist cleared to disclosed ten new apprentice seamen climbing aboard to keep the bronze, pink, and blue apartment shipshape. During the lull following rush season the twenty-six Delta Gammas held Open House for the fraternities along with the other sororities and later another one to Introduce older Greek gals to their newer sisters. The fall pledge formal was held December 12, at the Bur- gundy Room of the Wardman Park Hotel with the girls from the American University chapter. January initia- tion, February rushing, and its formal complications rounded out the first year ' s cruise of the Beta Rho. The first skipper, Cynthia Phillips, proved such an ideal helmsman, devoted to the welfare of both ship and crew, that her sisters honored her with a jeweled anchor In appreciation of services rendered. The year got off to a fine start the week before in- stallation when Janet Evans, a Hatchet editor, was tapped for Mortar Board. She was later included in Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges, Vi- vacious " Izzy " Knowles was D G ' s representative in the CHERRY TREE Beauty Contest, El Klockow devoted most of her spare time to work with Home Ec ' s Alpha Pi Epsilon, while behind the scenes at Cue V Curtain ' s plays lurk the Mary Janes (Baxter and Defrich) and Best Lewis. Vice-President Jean Sfalger was seen flitting to and from Orchesis in addition to her duties as pledge mistress. Heaps of thanks for helping make this a successful year are due to Miss Virginia Kirkbride, Director of Personnel Guidance, to our Greek friends (particularly Kappa Kappa Gamma), and last but far, far from least, to our sponsoring alumnae committee. 166 J Fir s+ Row: Mary Frances Brawner, Janet Evans, Susan Gouge Betty Hotter.
